NJHS members have the opportunity to become officers, the leaders of the group.

Officers are elected each August.  They keep their position for one school year.  If officers do not uphold their duties, they will receive a warning, and if there is still no improvement, there will be a hearing to determine whether they will keep their position.  If an officer is removed, elections for that position will be held again.
